Are Real Housewives Of Atlanta Producers Out To Get Nene Leakes ?!


This hasn't been the greatest season for Nene Leakes on The Real Housewives of Atlanta! She has lost friends, been blamed for all the drama, and is no longer starring in "The New Normal" or "GLEE." However, all these setbacks definitely haven't affected the reality star! She's recently dished to Essence.com about her new spot on Dancing With The Stars, if producers are out to get her on RHOA, and her infamous friendship with Marlo.


On working with her dance partner Tony Dovolani on DWTS:

"Obviously he has a passion for dance--he's been doing it since he was a kid. We've had a great connection. He and I danced and connected very well. We have been non-stop dancing 4, 5 hours, every single day. I've never missed a rehearsal. He's been great with me."


On if her stripper past gave her an edge with DWTS:

"[Laughs] Well, I thought it would give me a little edge. It didn't give me not a thing. This kind of dancing--if you have never trained for--is really tough. I thought I could at least roll my hips. They roll their hips in a whole other way. Their hip rolling is incredible. So, the exotic dancing didn't help me a bit, chile. I sure wished it had."


On her thoughts about Wendy Williams saying she won't win DWTS:

"Wendy was not going to win because she had two left feet [Williams was a contestant on season 12 of DWTS]. That was her issue. I know she might want to put me in the same box that she's in but I'm not. I don't have two left feet. I have a let and a right foot. And I have rhythm. Now, I'm not saying I'm going to win--that's not even my thought. I just want to take it one week at a time. If we make it all the way to the end, that's great, but I can't go in thinking that dar in advance."



On her relationship with Marlo:

"I considered Marlo a friend. She was in my wedding. I supported her when nobody supported her. As in, not one housewife wanted her around. Not Kandi, not Sheree, not Kim Zolciak, not Cynthia, not Phaedra, Andy Cohen, Bravo, or True Entertainment. In fact, Bravo said she was not their brand. That's how they described it. So, they didn't want her on the show. On the season prior to this, you didn't see her on the show at all because nobody wanted her around. I called Bravo; I called True Entertainment trying to ask them to let her be on the show. And all I can say is what you see on the show is not what happened to Marlo and me."


On if Kenya Moore is the reason she and Marlo are no longer friends:

"No one can step in our relationship and break us up if we're real friends. So, that's not it. Our stuff is deeper than Kenya Moore. If you watched my wedding show, you saw we had issues there. I felt like Marlo came in and caused a big divide among the girls. From there other things happened. But I see what they're trying to portray on the show. She knows, I know, Cynthia Bailey knows what happened between me and Marlo is way deeper. I wish her the best. I think she has a good heart. I do. I'm not interested in going to the media and bashing someone that I once called a friend. I do wish her the best, but I will never be friends with her again."



On if she thinks the producers are out to get her this season on RHOA:

"I feel like these networks and production companies--I'm just keeping it real--I just feel like they build you up to tear you down. I feel like they've done whatever they could do to try to not show me in the best light. There are so many things that happen on the show and they...I don't even want to talk about editing, because I feel so many people cry wold on editing. I'm just saying that they've done whatever they could to try and diminish anything that I've done and I'm okay with it because I know about reality TV. Every season there has to be a villain, there has to be somebody that straddles the fence, and there has to be a little sh-t stirrer. All of those things make the show. They decide who's going to be a villain this season or who's going to be this person or that person. We don't have any control over that. I think that the show has gotten great ratings. As much as people say they don't like drama, and why don't you guys stop doing this and that, they continue to tune in. And even more people have tuned in."

On if she will continue doing RHOA:

"This has opened up so many opportunities for me that I'm really grateful for. And I will say that I will continue to do it for as long as I can. I don't really know when that will be. But I know that I won't be doing it forever."
